The Streaking Wild
The Minnesota Wild are sitting 3rd in the Central division and are 6-3-1 over their last 10.
They have dropped their last 2 however and are looking to grab a win in New York City tonight.
The Wild have gotten fantastic play from Kirill Kaprizov and Mats Zuccarello this season. Zuccarello has 40 points and 16 goals and Kaprizov has 48 points with 23 goals.
The Wild also have been led on the back end by possible future Hall of Fame goaltender, Marc-Andre Fleury.
Fleury is 13-8-2 with a 2.94 GAA average and a .901 save percentage.
He has been solid in his first season so far for Minnesota and it looks like he will get the start tonight against the dangerous Rangers offense.
Igor in the Garden?
The Rangers are also playing great hockey, especially lately. The Rangers are sitting 4th in the Metropolitan Division, with 51 points. They are 6-2-2 in the last 10 games and have really started humming on the offensive end.
They have won 3 of their last 4 games and it is behind the great play of Mika Zibanejad.
Zibanejad has been awesome the past 5 games, scoring 5 goals and 6 points. But more on Zbad later 😉
On the back end, it is all about Igor. Shesterkin hasn’t been as amazing as he was last season but is still top 5 in the league.
He is 18-6-6 with a 2.48 GAA and a fantastic .916 save percentage.
If he can put up a great performance again tonight in the Garden, can the Rangers do enough on offense to lock up a win?
Or will the Wild come into the Big Apple and play spoiler?

I love the Rangers tonight.
If you are ok with eating the juice on the moneyline, then that is my favorite bet in this one.
-142 is a bit more juice than I like to lay so I am going to take the Rangers in regulation to get the job done.
They have won 5 of their last 7 games in the Garden and I think Igor and the boys in Blue get the job done.
Rangers in Regulation (+112)
Prop of the Game
Marc-Andre Fleury o27.5 Saves (-108)
I love this prop.
Fleury has been great so far this season for the Wild and will be getting peppered tonight.
Fleury had 28 saves last time out against the Rangers and has 28+ saves in 3 straight games and 4 of his last 5.
The Rangers also have 28+ shots in 5 straight and will surely be shooting early and often tonight.
